Volvo Penta Introduces New Marine Diesels
Volvo Penta has introduced a new line of marine diesel engines based on its proven and successful D11 series.
Offered in three power classes ‚625-, 670- and 725-hp, the new D11s provide more powerful torque, improved drivability and reduced noise levels compared to other engines in these horsepower classes. They also meet the world's most stringent engine regulations, U.S. EPA Tier 3, which will be in place in 2014. Tier 3 regulations are 40 percent lower compared with the current Tier 2 levels.
"The Volvo Penta D11 will be ideally suited for flybridge yachts and express and sport cruisers," says Thomas Lantz, Volvo's chief product manager. "The weight of these boats typically places high demands on the engine's performance, and the D11s high torque at low rpm produces rapid acceleration to plane, enhancing safety, fuel efficiency and comfort."
